Henderson, Nev. – The City of Henderson dedicates a day next month to celebrate one of the world’s greatest inventions, the bicycle. Crazy Spokes is scheduled for 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, April 11 at Mission Hills Park, 551 E. Mission Dr. The activities include a 25-mile organized bike ride, 6-mile family fun ride, and a festival focused on fitness. It is $20 per adult and $10 per child in advance for the 25-mile ride, and $5 per person for the family fun ride.
Participants are encouraged to dress up in costume for both bike rides to create a rolling carnival of fun. Wearing colorful and unique outfits, cyclists of all ages will travel in style as they wind their way through the River Mountains Loop Trail back to the start/finish line at the park. Onsite registration is at 9 a.m., with the 25-mile ride beginning at 10 a.m., and the 6-mile family fun ride starting at 10:30 a.m.
A fair takes place from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the park. Bicycling enthusiasts and novices to the hobby will enjoy a variety of attractions such as safety and bike demonstrations. The festival also includes a number of fitness booths and children’s activities.
Crazy Spokes is one of the city’s signature bicycling events. It not only celebrates the bicycle as an alternative mode of transportation and a fun way to exercise, but also acknowledges Henderson as a Bicycle Friendly Community, which was awarded last year by the League of American Bicyclists.
